Michael Gbinije had a team-high 20 points and scored the go-ahead basket for Syracuse against Gonzaga in a 63-60 win.

In a back-and-forth game between two evenly matched teams, the Orange outlasted No. 11 Gonzaga, 63-60, in the NCAA Midwest Regional round of 16 Friday night at the United Center in Chicago. Syracuse managed the clock well and won thanks to a 9-3 run in the final three minutes of the game. Graduate guard Michael Gbinije scored the basket which put Syracuse up for good; a layup after his own offensive-rebound to make the score 61-60 with 22 seconds to play.

The Orange pulls away from the Big Red in the second half for its eighth win of the year.

It was a tale of two halves.

After coming off an ugly loss to St. John’s last week, Coach Hopkins stressed two points to his team in their return to the Carrier Dome: play positive and don’t fall behind early.

Although the first 20 minutes were filled with poor shooting, careless turnovers, and sloppy interior defense on both sides, Syracuse managed to lead by 4 at the half mainly due to aggressive play and strong rebounding. The second half was a completely different story.
